False prophet warns of the dangers of listening to false prophets
This morning on The 700 Club, a viewer said her mother’s friend had recently claimed to be a “prophetess,” but her predictions were “way off.” The viewer wanted to know “how could someone who says she’s hearing from God be so wrong?”
Responding to the question, host Pat Robertson explained that this happens “all the time,” and called it “baloney” when people purport to “have a word from the Lord for you.” Robertson clarified that there are people who “really do have a prophetic word, but they are few and far between” and that you should “be careful” of false prophets and instead “let the Lord speak to you himself.”
His viewers would be well-served by this advice, considering Robertson himself has a long track record of offering utterly false “predictions” on The 700 Club that he claims to have gotten from God.
